    MZheng, that's high praise indeed. The last two decades takes in most of the career of Scott Hamilton (OGM 1984), as well as Brian Boitano, Brian Orser and Kurt Browning.

    4 of which are whom I consider to be the best(1984-1994... a very good decade of skating/skaters)... and Alexei is now in that group... but he isn't THE best

    Mathman, I forgot Kurt.

    He was my favorate at the time. I used to follow his pro skating. Whenever he was in the show (TV) you bet I was in front of tv. At this moment one of his show number flash back, the one some musisian was dedicated to him according to the commentator, kind of electronic and he flay his arm like hammering something. Too bad I didn't have the habit to tape by then.

    I had a tape of his Oly LP, Casanblanc (sorry for the spelling). I like skaters who can skate with passion and abondant along with the music. When watching them skating I always forgot the number I was counting for jumps and to think about it is only 7 (lady) or 9 (man) number need to be counted, . Kurt, Alexie, Michelle have this effect on me. With other skaters I have no problem to count the jumps from the beginning to end.

    Just like the "who is legend" thread, I think people will use different criteria to define who is the greatest. I voted for #1 because Alexie is the greatest male skater I've ever seen. Granted I haven't watched Scott H., Brian B. and Kurt Browning when they were eligible and had more hair:lol:

    Alexei is without a doubt my favorite male skater currently, if not of all time. Although I've never seen Scott Hamilton or Dick Button during their competitive days, I still think that Alexei should be included with the "greats" of the sport, because regardless of wether or not people like him, he is an Olympic Champion and a multiple World Champ, and those are not easy feats. Only a handful of people achive the title of Olympic Champion, so any time some one does, they will be remembered, no matter what.

    Yes, I like/love/adore Alexei.

    His performances in the Olympics got me interested in watching skating again.

    Back in 1998, I didn't like him one little bit. To me, he was just a "Russian jumping machine" - and our tv commentators prediction that he would mark the future of the sport for years to come rather shocked me.
    Fortunately, they were right - and thank God he found Tatiana Anatolievna! With every year, I liked him better - and then "Gladiator"! He came out second best, but I'm a fan ever since.
